    *** Possibility to sleep in a tent like us or sleep in a separate house with swimming pool***
    Ciao! We are a family of three and we just moved to the countryside!
    We live on the hills of northern Italy, near Reggio Emilia (45 min from Parma and 1,5 h from Bologna).
    I am a primary school teacher and my boys are 13 and 16. We want our Workaways to be part of the family and enjoy the cultural exchange just like us.
    We have one dog, one cat and chickens.
    The house will be restored in the summer. In the spring we need someone to look after the vegetable patch, plant some small trees, and many little jobs around the house you can choose from like for example repainting/sanding down the wooden beams or clean old wooden doors (we provide gloves and tools)
    Experience in carpentry would be ideal. My son makes bird feeders and bird boxes. If you are a couple, I also need help in the house (Floors and dishwashing after meals.) There's plenty to choose from. We try to live sustainably and help wildlife and biodiversity around us.
    Meals always with us and vegetarian.
    We forage for food whenever possible and I use lots of wild herbs in the spring.

    You will have a bedroom upstairs with a double bed and a curtain to separate from another room (empty) and stairs and then our bedroom downstairs. The house needs renovation and privacy is one of the reasons. When the builders arrive (end of june) we will all need to move outside and will stay in a tent in the garden. Shared heated bathroom inside, the outdoor kitchen is not complete yet but we have everything, we just need to organize. We also have a stone pizza oven. The idea is to build a 6x6m wooden platform in the woods and put a bell tent. Can you help us with that?
